Some Diamondbacks fans might take it as a bad omen when a Sith appears on the schedule in the middle of a series against the San Francisco Giants.
But don’t worry, there’s nothing to fear even if you happen to be a fugitive Jedi at Chase Field — it’s just an ad for Lucas Arts’ new video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, which releases the same day.
The epic game, launching simultaneously on most current platforms, explores the dark times between the prequels and the classic trilogy. You take on the role of Darth Vader’s “secret apprentice,” using incredible Force powers while acting on behalf of the Dark Lord — but is that your ultimate destiny?
The Force Unleashed, $39.99-$59.99, rated T for teen.
